Claire Murray walked up on November 19th, 2020 [from/via/route] Brae Fell, Great Sca Fell, Knott and High Pike from Fellside Farm [with] Vitor [weather] Warm and sunny but damp - Lovely walk with easy parking at the farm. No sheep on the hills and no leads required! There was no bridge the way the map told us to go but the river was wide, deep and fast flowing so we have to follow the river up by a mile or so until we found some bridges to get across.
